If they obliterated Osama bin Laden with a missile, they would have difficulty proving he was dead. The SEALs would be able to show they got him, but if things went badly they themselves might be killed. Either option was risky since the odds, as the president saw them, were only 50-50 that Bin Laden was even there. So a deputy national security adviser, Benjamin Rhodes, was asked to compose different speeches - one for a successful raid, the other for a botched one. Mark Bowden would seem like the perfect person to tell this dramatic story.
Mark Bowden's latest book, "The Finish," details the 10-year effort to find and deal with Osama Bin Laden. Unlike Mark Owens/Mark Bissonette's earlier "No Easy Day," Bowden's book focuses on the actual hunt for the terrorist chief, detailing how the American military and defense communities retooled themselves to deal with a terrorist enemy that was everywhere and nowhere at once

After masterminding the attacks of September 11, 2001, Osama bin Laden managed to vanish. Over the next ten years, as Bowden shows, America found that its war with al Qaeda-a scattered group of individuals who were almost impossible to track-demanded an innovative approach.
The real communications that Bin Laden sent out to his lieutenants, not least to his increasingly short-lived number threes – his operational commanders – had some of the same tone. After masterminding the attacks of September 11, 2001, Osama bin Laden managed to vanish.
The Finish: The killing of Osama bin Laden. The story focuses on bin Laden, who maintained a steady stream of despairing correspondence in hiding in the year before his death, and on President Obama, perceived by many as an anti-war candidate because of his opposition to the Iraq War, whose evolving views and enormous responsibilities have turned him into one of the most determined warriors to ever inhabit the White.
Bin Laden’s outrage and sense of betrayal were complete. The younger Azzam was attending a conference in the Sudan in 1995 when he dropped in to see bin Laden. He was considered dangerous enough in his home country that he was placed under house arrest. After the kingdom’s refusal to adopt his plan for a renewed holy war, instead opting for the more practical option of inviting the United States and other apostate countries to assemble military forces to confront Saddam, bin Laden’s brothers used their influence to get his passport back, and he left Saudi Arabia permanently, first traveling to Pakistan, then to Afghanistan, then. the Sudan, and then back to Afghanistan
